Welcome to our Reception class page. This half term our connector is 'My favourite things'. Do you have a favourite toy? what is your favourite activity? We will be thinking about all of the changes we can see in our local environment such as changes in the weather and in nature. The children will be exploring celebrations that fall in the Autumn term. We will be exploring Autumn creatures and how they prepare for the colder weather. We will be introducing new vocabulary such as hibernate and nocturnal to explore different types of creatures.

 

Our children are settled, excited and motivated to learn!

 

Communication:

 

We will be discussing our favourite things such as; toys, TV programmes, food, animals, games, colours etc.

Your child can bring their favourite toy or book to school to show to the class.

We will be taking lots of photographs of your children enjoying their favourite activities in school and sharing this with you via our Tapestry program. Your child can also bring in a photograph of their favourite thing to do at home, or favourite places they have visited to share with their friends.

 

 

Maths:

 

Our focus this term will be learning to count beyond 10, and to say one number name for each object. We will also work on recognising numerals 1-10 and extending to 20. We will be singing lots of number rhymes, to learn about adding one more and taking one away.

We will discuss the shapes of everyday objects, and going for shape hunts around the school. We will be exploring pattern in the environment, and making our own repeating patterns. We will be making choices and justifying decisions to sort familiar objects to identify their similarities and differences.

We will be learning positional language e.g. under, over, behind, next to etc.

 

Personal Social and Emotional Development:

 

We will be making new friends and finding out about our new class routines and rules. We will be learning to share and to take turns.

Library Books!

 

The children be visiting our school library and taking out a book of their choice to promote reading for pleasure.

 

Each book has been taken out on your child's individual library card. We recommend that your child returns their library book by latest on the following Thursday so that their old book can be returned and new books taken out on a Friday.

 

Please ensure that the books are kept in good quality as books drawn on, ripped or not returned will mean that your child may not get to take out library books in the 

future.

 

Happy reading.
